And I think that might be why I don’t headcanon a sibling often, because the sadness of Alex’s mother being alone is integral to my headcanon for Alex’s time spent in Witsec. But I can understand where you’re coming from (though I’m not an only child and I do, in fact, have a younger sibling.)
Anonymous: In your headcanon, does Alex have siblings, or is she an only child? Large extended family or small? Just curious :)
Ah, it depends on what day you ask lol
Normally, I headcanon that Alex is an only child. My main reason for that is the dialogue during “Loss.” Alex says that she has a security detail and so does her mother. If Alex were to have siblings, wouldn’t they have a security detail as well? Though I guess you could then suggest that maybe her siblings don’t live in New York or nearby. But at any rate, most days, I headcanon that Alex is an only child with very involved parents.
Other days, I’ll headcanon that Alex has a brother, usually older, who is devilishly handsome and a bit of playboy. Physically similar (blonde hair, blue eyes, tall), but with very different personalities.
And I do see Alex with a very large extended family. Lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Anonymous: Thank you for never letting me down with my drabble requests! I think our headcanons are complete opposites, but everything you write is just what I always needed. Let me dig deep in my A/O vault and come up with something else for you now!
Aww! Well, I’m glad because I know that, sometimes, it can be difficult to get into someone’s writing when their headcanon is drastically different from your own. I’m glad you’re enjoying what I’m writing :)
(also, I’m always open to discussing my headcanon)
Drabble request - Toys ;)
“So…” Olivia whispered. It has taken her two months for Olivia to get to this point – two long months to figure out exactly how to ask this question. Even the thought of it provoked cold sweats. And the idea of Alex’s response? Well, that was enough to give her heart palpitations.
Her head was tilted, eyes averted, cheeks slightly red – Alex knew that look. She was embarrassed. And Olivia was the most adorable thing in the world to Alex when she got embarrassed.
